Frog Kissing

They say you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince, and the same thing could be said of the little green guys who, with a metaphoric kiss, turn into buyers who actually reach the settlement table.

We drove up to Provincetown for a second round of parasailing, and I met these guys on a walk along the main drag. 

They got me thinking.

Could the first one could be my next sweetie.  And might the second buy a multi-million dollar house in Georgetown?

I've certainly kissed a lot of frogs in my day, and in bursts of optimism, I keep on trying!

Or was I merely looking for an excuse to work this two adorable hunks into a blog post?
